You will need to install the latest VIA Chipset found at:
Version - 5.20a

(requires a restart)

and then install the VIA AC97 codecs incorporated into VT8233, VT8233A, VT8233C, VT8235 and VT8237/R South Bridges found here:
Version - 7.00b

(yep, requires another restart)

Did you ask GATEWAY? Is it on board sound? Has the motherboard been replaced? Did you look on the Gateway site for your computer to get the driver for your O.S.?
Here is the link.

Cant hear sound off my laptop


There are two possible reasons why your laptop is experiencing from this kind of problem.

1. Hardware problem - you need a technician to fix it.
2. Software issue - you can do it yourself

Here's how to isolate the reason why you are having this issue.

Boot to safe mode.

Restart your computer and tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode. Use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode with networking. Hit enter

Once you are in safe mode, check if the sound works. If yes, then update the sound driver. You can find the sound driver in the website of the computer's manufacturer. Or you can use RadarSync to search the driver and update it without you doing anything at all. I will also scan the other drivers which are outdated.

You can also go back to the normal mode by restarting your computer and go to the device manager. Uninstall the sound driver from there and restart your computer.

I hope this helps!

If you have any questions, please drop me a line.

Your problem may be due to some problems.
among these are problems in the audio driver or settings problem ataupau speaker on your computer's sound system has changed.
The first thing you need to ensure that the whole setting on your sound system is activated or the situation could possibly use.
if the same problem, do troubleshooting on your speakers using the ear phone to troubleshooting.
If the status remains the same, check your sound drivers or remove the existing driver and then re mamasangnya the updated driver from the manufacturer.
if all these measures are not successful, you need to reinstall the operating system (reformat) to identify whether the problem comes from the operating system or device. but if you do not want to take the decision to reformat the operating system, you can just change the sound device and all your problems should be done, unless there is a problem of your operating system from virus attacks, it is likely it also will disrupt the operation of a voice device.

No Sound on my IBM t43 Thinkpad

all hardware requires a driver
driver is an information file that tells the operating system how device works
without the driver the device cant work

when you reformatted you must not have installed sound drivers

here is a link to Windows XP version of the sound drivers of your laptop

download it
install it

and you will have sound

if you have a different operating system than windows XP, tell me and i will give you link for that

Sound drivers

Do you have a yellow exclamation mark in the control panel? Sounds like you are missing a driver.

What model is it? Go to and put in the model number and download the drivers and install them.
